I am using Easylist as well.

Hm... does yours feel a bit slower also? Even after a reboot (which I seldom do/required by the install) to seems that I'm waiting noticeably longer for the pages to be rendered. It was definitely quicker before the RC/TPL.

I tried the beta and it was horrible. I had to uninstall it.  undecided

I'll wait for a bit then see what people have to say.

Horrible in what way?

Now that is a cleaver idea.

...And they have an installer-less 27KB Corporate/Lite version!

It turned off (via hotkey) both of the monitors on my Win7 x64 box just fine.

Shit, this is the coolest thing I've seen all week!!!

Okay, Posting from IE9 RC smiley

I decided to go with the EasyList TPL, (basically) because I recognized the AdBlock name it was tied to. So... We'll see how that works out.

My ieSpell addon is still working (this is good...!)

@Josh - Which (if any) TPL did you go with?
3230  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: March 2011 DonationCoder.com Fundraiser Celebration -- Ideas for Special Events? on: February 11, 2011, 03:14:31 PM
Also, how about creating a special user rank for people who donate certain amounts (Like atm we have "Supporting Member" and such) you could have something to show the level they have donated.

The Supporting Member label/rank is subtle, and I think better for it. Making too much of a hub-bub about who donated what tends to hamper the relaxed feel of a place.

Also...I think there should be something like "If We Raise $10000 During the fundraiser, Mouser will strip to his underwear and run through the streets screming 'I LOVE CODY, CODY IS THE BIRD GOD'" (This has to be recorded and uploaded to the website for all to see as proof!)

Should probably limit that to something that would leave the man with at least a shred of dignity... smiley

If mouser launches the "Reply of the Month" I'd vote for that... to stop Cranioscopical winning the whole

Bad idea, I need that like I need a whole in the head.

Its a shame that it is illegal to help humans but also illegal NOT to help pets in the way in the UK.

Same here in the US - But being humane to each-other is (i guess) too much to ask of our species...

Sorry for your loss. My wife is taking one of our dogs (17yr old Boston Terrier) to the vet today to discuss his current "quality-of-life".

IE9's release candidate is looking promising. I am giving it serious thought to moving back to IE if IE9 turns out to be as good as this RC is showcasing.

I've been using the IE9 betas at home for so long I can't even remember when I started (6 or 8 month, or more). I'm quite happy with it so far, and hope to have time to install the RC this evening.

@timns - Research mainly. You start looking into something and the research branches, and something else comes up, and again.... (etc.) Next thing you know there are 75 plus tabs open on 8 different instances of the browser. ...And that's just on a "normal" day.... Wink
3236  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: A question for Google -- why are you so desperate to have me switch to Chrome? on: February 11, 2011, 11:17:44 AM
I use IE for all my most important stuff that matters.

FF is my workhorse for 99%.

I'm confused, if you're using FF 99% of the time, what "important" stuff are you doing in IE?

Chrome just flat out irks me...So I use IE for everything. But it is a bit of a bummer to see FF slipping so much here lately, I rather liked it...Never used it much...But I liked it.

Baron Stoic Joker the Xanthocronic: Malign Cephlopod of the uphill Gardeners

So... do I go with the one I can't pronounce, or should I just stick with Bitch-Queen?!?
3241  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: All Hail...! on: February 10, 2011, 01:58:35 PM
Stoic Joker: now that's a damn nifty title! I love the word 'ineffable' - it's right up there with 'exhume' in my list of nifty++ english words.

I have no problem with ineffable, as I have frequently left people searching for words in an attempt to describe my antics. Having a rather dry whit, I can even deal with the concept of being a capricious stoic... I'm at an age where many of my memories are (at least becoming) archane...and I like the wilderness. But, Bitch-Queen?!? That's a hell of a thing to hang on a guy....

3243  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: No, robot: Japan's elderly fail to welcome their robot overlords on: February 09, 2011, 05:45:12 PM
And how about letting the elderly stay at home longer? There are plenty that wouldn't need to go to hospitals so soon, if there was some way that would allow them to stay where they are. My grandmother would have loved to have a robot to be there when I wasn't, to pick up all the things she dropped on the floor and couldn't safely bend down to reach herself. (her dog was never too good at playing fetch)

That is more the direction I was going (or meant to). It just seems that we have become a disposable society to such an extent, that we now are looking for ways to (justify) disposing of (inconveniently lingering family members) each other.

Better to invest in a spell checker than a "propogation" checker.

Quite to the contrary, I think there is a great market for propoogation checkers. They are after the only way to conclusively know when when someone is coming close to being completely full of shit.

...Why if you only had one you'd know I've been topped off for a while... Wink
3245  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: No, robot: Japan's elderly fail to welcome their robot overlords on: February 09, 2011, 04:52:06 PM
That's a rather disturbingly stupid idea. Robots perform functions, they can't "care"...They can't even feel. Trying to warehouse the elderly in that fashion is simply appalling.

That one made me wince, audibly...

On topic: (A Plain Electronic Notepad, Hm...)

This part from the page sounded interesting:

NoteSlate Firmware (NSF)
- NSF will be opensourced
- NS Firmware 0.7 (basic drawing)
- NS Firmware 1.0 (+ notes, mp3)
- NS Firmware 1.5 (+ *.PDF text viewer (just bitmap mode)
- NS Firmware 2.0 (+ OCR handwritten recognition)
 
- "Share" client (on models with Wi-Fi), Share client UI and description will be revealed soon

I'm interested...This could have potential!
3247  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Wanna try something weird? A little Outlook 2007 fun. on: February 09, 2011, 11:52:58 AM
Tried it with Outlook 2010 - Not sure what you're calling the header field but... - on the ribbon it did nothing; on new mail to/from/cc/bcc/subject fields it made the font bigger and/or smaller.

the same thing works on the main message body, and tracked with the zoom the current setting ... So I'm guesing it just Zooming the text in the other fields also.
3248  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: DNS Propogation Checkers to Check DNS Propogation Status on: February 09, 2011, 06:48:51 AM
Interesting, I typically use nslookup in interactive mode to query various servers to see how things are progressing. But this could be handy for those days where I'm feeling a bit lazy...or am just too pressed for time to schlog through the whole manual routine.
3249  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Should MS open up Windows Update to 3rd parties? on: February 08, 2011, 03:14:45 PM
It works out great...and takes up no space at all!

You are right of course - I just object to wasting my bandwidth on downloading DVD images when I have better things to do. Its fine when you super fast internet access but when it takes half a day per file ...

+1!  Grin

It's not quite that slow for me. But I still batch them a few at a time for overnight when I don't need something 'immediately.'

Me too. We have a T1 here at the office, which really ain't that fast by todays standards - But we need the guaranteed upstream for misc.. If I really gotta get something quick, I'll RDP into my home office and setup the transfer from there (and go grab it at lunch or on the way to where ever).

I've still got several stacks of CDs from the MSDN subscription stacked around my office that I haven't had time to deal with...and we went digital delivery 2 years ago...

I can still get anything I need is short order, and locally store (.iso) copies of things I use often. It works out great...and takes up no space at all!
